Yorkshire Sculpture Park Presents Alfredo Jaar

14 October 2017–15 April 2018
Underground Gallery and open air

Yorkshire Sculpture Park presents a major solo exhibition by pioneering Chilean artist, Alfredo Jaar. This important project is a key part of YSP’s 40th anniversary celebrations taking place throughout 2017. Widely regarded as one of the world’s most politically engaging yet poetic artists, Jaar addresses humanitarian trauma and the politics of image-making, creating visually and emotionally stunning works that have an exceptional aesthetic. Trained as a magician and subsequently as an architect, Jaar often uses constructed spaces and light to navigate what is seen and what is not. At YSP seminal installations will transform the Underground Gallery and its open-air concourse.
